Non-Resident Transfers

Evadale ISD is a limited open-enrollment district. A non-resident student in grades K - 12 living outside the boundaries of Evadale , may be permitted to apply to attend EISD. A parent or legal guardian of a non-resident student may request a transfer from his or her home district to a EISD.

Factors to be considered for non-resident, limited open-enrollment students who do not reside within Evadale ISD boundaries include :

  • Available capacity in the school
  • Availability of Instructional staff
  • The transfer student’s attendance is in good standing
  • The transfer student’s behavior is in good standing
  • The transfer student has passed all state-mandated assessments (such as STAAR)

Applications for non-resident transfers are considered by student and not by family. Approved transfers remain in effect until the student completes the grade levels at the campus unless the transfer is revoked as per Board Policy FDA(LOCAL). For each transitional year the student must apply for a new transfer request. An approved transfer for one child does not guarantee space availability for current or future siblings.

A. Required documents to complete the Non-Resident Student Transfer

Two documents for verification of Residency are required: a current property tax statement, current signed lease/rental agreement or deed of sale, and current utility bill (electric, gas or water). Also required: (If not currently attending EISD) a recent grade report card verifying attendance and behavior and a most recent state assessment performance (STAAR).

The District Transfer Committee will review all documents and application request. If required documents are not attached or accurate, the transfer request will be considered incomplete and not entered into the application pool.

B. Transportation

The parent will provide transportation for transfer students. Any right to free transportation offered by the District is waived.

C. University Interscholastic League (UIL) Eligibility

Any student who transfers to a school outside of the student's attendance area of residence will be subject to all eligibility rules of the University Interscholastic League (UIL) as well as those that may be adopted by the EISD Board of Trustees. It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to contact the EISD Executive Director of Athletics for more information.

D. Revocation of Transfer

A transfer student who fails to abide by the rules and policies as contained in the EISD Student-Parent Handbook exhibits poor academic performance, has multiple behavioral referrals, has repeated incidences of tardies, or exhibits poor attendance may have his or her transfer revoked by the campus principal.
